We’re not a regular hostel, indeed, but a chain of apartments in the very centre of Budapest around St. Stephen's Basilica. If you fancy privacy and want to stay in a place that feels just like home, come to Pal's Hostel and enjoy your own apartment in Budapest.
We won the Hoscar of 'Best Hostel in Hungary 2013':)
We also offer private rooms with a shared bathroom. Most of them are in apartments where we work (where our reception desk is, where we do the laundry...). All apartments/rooms are within 100-400 metres of our office.
Please note that our rooms called 'Basic Double Bed Private (Shared Bathroom)' are literally with double beds.
Please also note that we have no elevator for the rooms with shared bathrooms (but they’re only on the 1st and 2nd floors:)).
And we have no A/C:(
We’re very close to Deak Ferenc Square, the main junction for all undergrounds in Budapest. We are happy to be at your assistance here. You can print your e-ticket, buy tickets for the Szechenyi baths, Gellert baths or the caving tour. We also sell the Budapest Card. We have reasonable local knowledge to give you advice. We can help you get to Ozora Festival, Sziget Festival or Balaton Sound!
We can pick you up at the airport for €24 for 1-4 people; this means if there’s four of you it’s only €6 per person, while public transport is about €2.50 per person. Our contact information will be in your booking confirmation email.
We’re in the very centre of downtown. From here you can easily get to most of the sights on foot, such as Saint Stephen Basilica, Chain Bridge, Parliament, Andrassy Avenue (part of the World Heritage), Opera House, Great Synagogue, National Museum, Vaci Street, Vorosmarty Square and a lot of restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs, party places on foot as well (like Akvarium Club, Anker Club, Castro Bistro, Szimpla Pub and Katapult).
Other important sightseeing spots like Buda Castle (also part of the World Heritage with the Fisherman's Bastion, Matthias Church and the National Gallery), Heroes' Square, the City Park or the baths (Szechenyi, Gellert, Rudas) are also close. You can be there in 20-30 minutes.
The Danube bank is only five minutes’ walk away!
Our reception desk is open from 10 am to 6 pm every day. If you arrive later than 6 pm we will come back to let you in.
We will contact you for detailed information about your arrival - such as train or flight details - a few days before your arrival.
Please note that you can take your room from 14:00. If you arrive earlier you can lock up your luggage or wait in our office from 10am.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
A chilled hostel with very friendly and helpful staffs. Vera was great before and after we arrive Budapest providing us with answers to our queries. Centrally located hostel, we stayed in an apartment with a large bedroom shared bathroom at a very affordable price. I would definitely stay at Pal's again if I revisit Budapest based on price, location & welcoming helpful staffs!
